Matrox does NOT tell you anywhere it does NOT work with Apple Thunderbird Displays!!!
4 March 2015
Summary: Matrox nowhere states that it does NOT allow the use of the Apple Thunderbolt displays on their system - it will work with VGA and DVI interface displays, but NOT a thunderbolt interface display like the ones Apple makes and sells!
Summary: Other than taking away the use of one of my USB hubs I really have no complaints. I'm making use of a MBP I bought four years ago and couldn't be happier at the moment. That is...until I upgrade.
Pros: -Compact. Did not expect the device to take up as little space as it did. -Plug and use. Worked completely out of the box with no errors. I hooked up my 2010 MBP to 1 Acer S323HL Abid 23" and 1 Acer S232HL Bbid 23" monitor and was immediately impressed. So much more desktop space. Some of my old ...
Cons: -Did however required you to have 2 DVI-D cords lying around, but that was okay because somehow I did. -For older MBPs it takes away the use of a USB port. For many, this doesn't present as a problem but for someone who uses multiple devices requiring 500 mA power output I had to purchase a power...
Summary: Bought one few months ago and it worked for about a month. Then I installed DisplayFusion and it was constantly conflicting with that. Maximizing various applications like YouTube was outright broken (it would stretch over 2 screens). Then it just stopped working completely.
Summary: When I plug it in, it rarely inits my two monitors and I have to go through a 5 minute cable shuffle before it gets recognized. Though it advertises 1920x1200, it will only support 1920x1080 - leaving me with screen stretching or falling back to 1600x1050 (which looks like hell). Never again.
Summary: I use this to hook up 2 Dell Ultrasharp 24 inch monitors to my late 2011 Macbook Pro. Download the driver and it's simple plug and play from there. It turns your macbook into 3 screens (the 2 monitors and the macbook itself).
Summary: But overall, dealing with that is well worth with it to have 2 monitors running off the Thunderbolt instead of 1 here and 1 HDMI producing different colors.
Pros: Just hooked this up to my Mac Mini with 2 Acer S275HL . If your running OSX Mavericks prepare to lose that new feature for having the menus on both monitors. This device basically takes to a 3000 pixel display and divides the feed in 2.
Cons: Had to move the dock to the side b/c the bottom isnt really the bottom, and when you go to Launchpad or hit CMD+TAB it gets split across your monitors.
Best way to go for a MacBook Air, but not perfect.

Summary: I'll start by saying that this product was actually recommended to me in an Apple Store, as the only really good way to add two external monitors to a MacBook Air. USB adapters are the only other way, and they generally suck.
Summary: Yes, this will allow you to have two screens, but the way it accomplishes that is less than eloquent. Instead of having two separate desktops, you'll have one really long desktop that takes up both screens.
Highly recommend product - Cust Service rivals anything out there

Summary: I can't rave enough about this product or the company. I am video editing on an IMac that has only two Thunderbolt ports. While that provides me with the option of two additional monitors, I needed a third monitor. The Matrox DualHead works perfect.
